In order to solve the problems of ill-balanced task allocation, long response time, low throughput rate and poor performance when the cluster system is assigning tasks, we introduce the concept of entropy in thermodynamics into load balancing algorithms. This paper proposes a new load balancing algorithm for homogeneous clusters based on the Maximum Entropy Method (MEM). By calculating the entropy of the system and using the maximum entropy principle to ensure that each scheduling and migration… CONTINUE READING
